We are all set for summer camp! Just a reminder to be at the church on Sunday at NOON. We must check out of Camp on Saturday the 24th at 10am and need volunteers to help drive the scouts back to the Church. Most likely we will be back at the church by 10 and would need drivers to come to camp around 830am.
I have all the paperwork. If I found something missing then I should have contacted you directly. Thank you to all the parents that worked hard to get all those physicals and paperwork done.
If you can drive to camp then please come to the church

Friday is designated as family night at the Boy Scout camps. Families of Scouts are encourage to visit, eat supper with their Scout, and join us for the Friday night closing campfire. Camp Scoutmasters should be prepared to provide the camp with an approximate count by mid-week, so we can ensure enough food is prepared.
